The D'ni Council was the executive, legislative, and judicial body of D'ni, and after the abdication of King Kerath, the governing body. It held power, with the ability to write and enforce legislation as well as carry out hearings.
The Council consisted of 365 members: the 18 Grand Masters, 19 Guild Masters from each Guild, plus the Five Great Lords of D'ni.
There also existed a smaller Emergency Council which ruled when the safety of D'ni itself was threatened.
History and decisionsEdit
Around 3961, King Lemashal wished to establish the new Guild of Illusionists as a cover for a new body, the Relyimah. Although he did not need Council approval to order the new Guild, he purposely wanted the debates to take place as a distraction and gave a speech to the Council arguing for the establishment of the Guild, illusion being a valid form of entertainment, until the Council gave their approval.
In the first years of Demath's rule, the Council carried out emergency meetings, concerning their stance on the outsiders, concluding that relations would continue with much stricter guidelines. Demath signed them into law.
In an effort to to further please the Guilds, King Kerath recommended new renovations and additions to the Council Chamber and construction of a new Guild Hall. Upon his abdication, Kerath appointed the first Five Lords of the D'ni, thenceforth holding the authority of the former Kings.
